"PROUDLY WE HAIL" 

Toda)', after a dozen years of sacrificial labors, a man of unshaken faith and 
courage is bringing a vision into reality. The man: Dr. John Taylor Williams; the 
faith: that the \-ision could become a reality; the vision: that Princess Anne College 
could grow into a seat of learning with a range of services for the maximum benefit 
of students seeking to prepare themselves for constructive living in the important 
remaining years of the twentieth century. To keep his vision unclouded and steady, 
the man \isualized harmonious physical surroundings of comfort and beauty as 
the right of college generations present and to come; for spacious ivy-covered build- 
ings are the temples of learning. More significantly, he dreamed of bringing together 
an assemblage of learned men and women — priests and priestesses of the tem- 
ples — to inspire and lead students at the newly called "Maryland State College." 

The students of Maryland State College hail proudly the accomplishments born 
of this man's dream: Increasing opportunities for worthy and needy students to 
receive aid; fabled achievements in athletics and public relations; a brilliant faculty 
whose standards of scholarship are high; a campus whose beauty and conveniences 
increase steadily; and a true community of teachers and students in a bond of to- 
getherness found only in places where struggles have become victories. 

Gratitude is the companion of the pride in these accomplishments, and to ex- 
press it in humble measure, the students of Maryland State College dedicate their 
first yearbook to the man whose work, courage, and faith in a vision are bringing 
into realization the growth of their Alma Mater in strength and honor:

The George E. C. Hayes Student Loan Fund was es- 
tablished in 1957 to fill a felt need. The Student Loan 
Fund Committee, comprised of upper-level students, is 
charged, under faculty advisorship, with the basic opera- 
tion of the fund. 

The operating goal of $5,000, as set by the President of 
Maryland State College, was exceeded this year. The fol- 
lowing sources accounted for the aggregate total: contri- 
butions from students, faculty and staff members, other 



individuals, campus organizations, off-campus organiza- 
tions, profitable enterprises, and savings-account investment. 
The purpose of the Fund is to aid worthy students in 
their efforts to negotiate specified, minor financial barriers 
which tend to interfere with the educational objective. 
Short-term loans, based on stipulated minimum and maxi- 
mum amounts for limited needs, characterize the aid ren- 
dered by the Fund.

The ROTC Cadet Corps extends a greeting to 
the members and friends of Maryland State Col- 
lege. The ROTC Department since coming to the 
campus in 1950, has seen many changes. With 
each successive change of personnel, there have 
been corresponding improvements so that Mary- 
land State College now has one of the most effi- 
cient units in this area. The unit is conducted 
almost entirely by the Cadet Officers with the 
supervision of Air Force Instructors. Cadet Officers 
are incorporated into the Benjamin O. Davis 
Squadron of the Arnold Air Society — the Na- 
tional Association of ROTC Cadet Officers. In 
addition are the activities of the Drill Team and 
Angel Flight. The Angel Flight is composed of 
women who support the ROTC and assist it in 
carrying out its activities. The Angel Flight also 
performs at Half-Time Ceremonies at football 
games — marching individually and with the 
Drill Team. The Drill Team participates at foot- 
ball games, parades and other activities all over 
the Eastern Shore, enrapturing the public with 
their formations and maneuvers. 

Activities of each year end with Military Day — 
usually held the first of May. On Military Day, 
the public is invited to Open House and to wit- 
ness what the Cadet Corps members have earned. 
There are contests, displays, awards, and vasiting 
dignitaries. Military Day ends with the Military 
Ball at which Cadets appear in formal Dress Uni- 
form and their women guests wear formal gowns. 
Attending the Ball is the goal of Cadets through 
each ROTC Year.

The Delcon Hall Story 

Newspaper headlines on Februar)' 2 read : 
"Princess Anne, Maryland. February 1 — Scientifically controlled 
inferno, this crisp, near cloudless, Sunday morning began reducing 
Delcon Hall, sixty-seven year old (condemned) wooden structure, to 
glowing embers and hot ashes while o\er two thousand spectators 
looked on with mixed emotions." 

The building referred to as DELCON HALL was not in reality, 
one building but two buildings, ELIZA SMITH Hall and DELCON 
Hall. 

Eliza Smith Hall, the older of the two buildings, was erected in 
the year of 1892, as a charitable expression by Mr. Dexter Smith of 
Springfield, Massachusetts in memory of his daughter, Eliza. The 
approximate cost of this 30-room, 4-story structure, in 1892 was ap- 
proximately $3,500. 

This structure has served its day and many generations in numerous 
useful helpful ways. It was originally built to house women students. 
Instructional requirements demanded its first floor space to accomo- 
date the home economics department ; a sewing laboratoiy on the 
east side of the hall and a foods laboratory on the west side. 

This requirement robbed Eliza Smith Hall of eight of its dormitory 
rooms, and housing was a problem. After a few years of crowded living, 
the Delaware Conference of the Methodist Church, came to the 
rescue of its Academy by appropriating approximately $8,000 for the 
building of a new dormitory for women students. \Vith student 
labor Delcon Hall was erected and occupied in 1915; a 4-story, 
44-room, full basement building with its individual heating system. 
This addition relieved the crowded living environment of the women 
students and made possible the admission of more. Delcon Hall re- 
ceived its name from the name of the Conference, which at that 
time was its chief sponsor, DEL from "Delaware," CON from 
"conference." 

Near the end of the spring semester of 1943, Murphy Hall, a new 
dormitory for women was completed and the ladies left these now 
aging premises for more modern facilities and the men students were 
mo\'ed from their improvised housing areas to the Delcon Hall unit. 
At the same time the Eliza Smith Hall sei-\'ed as quarters for faculty 
apartments and rooms. 

Somerset Hall, a dormitory for men, was completed in 1949, and 
many of the men students moved to the new dormitory. The first two 
stories of Delcon Hall were still used for regular housing, and the 
third story was i:sed to house visiting teams. 

At the opening of the fall semester, 1950, Harford Hall was opened 
to satisfy student housing, and Delcon Hall was renovated to accom- 
modate faculty families and single faculty and staff members. 

In 1948 a shift was made in housing on the first floor of the Eliza 
Smith Hall, in order to accommodate the Music Department and 
this Music Department, with its facilities and acti\ities, added warmth 
and gaiety for Eliza Smith Hall's last days. 

For those like Mr. Waldo Kiah, the author of this story, who call 
this their home, and who ha\c tra\ailcd at Maryland State College for 
an extcnsi\c period, there was a feeling of remorse as flames ate into 
the \itals of a once stalwart frame. "To sec her succumb to the torrid 
fury of raging flames could not be called a moment of glee." 

Her frame went up in flame and smoke, but the memories and 
history of the sen-ice rendered will e\er be an indestructible shrine in 
the hearts and minds of many men and women. Paraphrasing a por- 
tion of our former Alma Mater: 

"And may her memory ever be 

A sacred shrine whence men shall see 

Her beacon light of truth." 




ALL THE HAWKS WERE VALIANT . . . 
Pictured above are three of the outgoing seniors of the "Fighting Hawk Machine": James 
Coley, Willie Wyatt, and Roosevelt Turner. 



The memory of their spirit, devotion, and service to athletics here at the college 
will linger in the minds of all Hawks — past and future — for it is the likes of 
them that make us successful over the years.
